Christmas Greetings



Hello my friends!  I hope you are all doing well!  It has been a busy week here, as my hubby had cataract surgery yesterday, and today we were back down to the city for the follow up exams, etc.  All went very well and he is very happy to be seeing so well!  Now he's already wanting to get the other eye done as it's made him realize how even what was his "good" eye now is his "bad" eye.  LOL!  Isn't it amazing what can be done these days!!!  The procedure has been improved so much over what it used to be and we are so thankful!!!

Anyhoo... I wanted to share another card I made with this month's fantastic sets from Our Daily Bread designs.  I used Cardinal Ornament for my image, and Christmas Flourished Verses for the sentiment.  The image is cut with Spellbinders Classic Circle Large, and is framed with Spellbinders Ornate Artisan Tags & Accents.  The sentiment is cut with Spellbinders Fancy Framed Tags Two.  Istamped with Memento Ink,  colored the image with Copics, and sponged the sentiment panel with Brilliance Silver Ink.  The ribbon is May Arts (from my stash) and the bling is from my stash.  I really am enjoying playing with these sets!!! 



I am entering this in the following challenges:
